, was an apology according to mitt romney and put at the feet of the president of the united states by mitt romney says in part that the embassy in cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of muslims as we ken dumb efforts to offend believers of all religions. today the anniversary of september 11th americans are honoring our patriots those that serve our nation is the fitting democracy. respect is a cornerstone of american democracy and reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others. this was released by the embassy in cairo apparently without washington's approval six hours before the protests. not as an apology for the protests or explanation or response. you've been in embassies around the world, top levels of the state department in washington, first of all, do the press officers at embassies have the authority to release a statement like that if intelligence and other information indicates that they may be experiencing protests? >> they certainly do. we have one of the most

: the united states has decided to disclose names of those at guantanamo bay. a story this morning said -- harrisburg, pennsylvania. hello. caller: i like c-span. thank you for your program. i would say 85% of the population does not even understand either plan. it is confusing, and there are a lot of scare tactics. i was in the bush and i got a lot of poison ivy on me. this was about six years ago. i had to go to the emergency room because the va is not open on saturday. i went to the emergency room and waited about four hours or whatever. i got a bill for something like $250. just two months ago i was going to virginia to go on a little fishing -- kickback and all that. when i was cleaning my fishing box, my big knife close down on my right index finger and probably needed a couple of stitches. three days later in a balloon up a really big. i went to the emergency room and was there for six hours and received a bill three weeks later. three days after that i went to the medical center and spent two hours there. i got a bill from the first place i went to that was like $115. that is a
demonstrated a willingness to tackle long- term debt problem of the united states. i think he is prepared to do that and prepared to push through a plan if we make some amount of progress in this election, but i assume he will be a great second-term president. >> i agree with melody, i think the election will be very close, but i believe the president will be reelected, because i do not think this country wants to go back to the policies being advocated by the mitt romney/paul ryan ticket to a place where we're talking about reducing taxes on middle income people. a place where we're reducing regulation in a way that opens us up to the same abuses that got us into the financial crisis that led to the recession we are still climbing out of. i do not think women want to go back to a place where health care choices is something that is problematic. where our environment is at risk, because we do not have an energy policy that recognize the needs for clean, alternative sources of energy. i do not think the country wants to go back to that place. i do a thing when the president reelected, one of the

of the government. it will not make everyone outside the united states happy but it ensures due process. we have to change our standard of proof in some of the cases so we do not release people we are suspicious would return to the battlefield even if we cannot establish it. we need to keep some of the information classified. it took a long-term in the bush administration to convey the sense there would be independent review. a lot of this was personalized unsecretary rumsfeld and i understand the reason for that. but it got in the way of us having due process and it got in the way of a fair perception of what we are trying to do with guantanamo bay. we are in as good a play as we could, in many ways, but it took a long-term to get here. >>shepard: than you. americans' paycheck shrunk for the second straight year hitting a low we have not seen in decades a word from a census bureau report out today indicating that the typical family's income fell or was flat in nearly every state last year. nationally the median household income dropped a percentage point and now at $50,500 per family. that mean
. that's important. because that distinguishes him from the united states senate which also has a legal obligation to submit a budget and has refused to do so for the last three years. you wonder why it is we can't come together on funding priorities, madam speaker, three years the senate has said we are not going to tell you what we are interested in doing. we are not going to provide you with any ideas. and because we won't move it, the house product can't move, the president doesn't have anything to work with, and you see the kind of economic turmoil that we are in today. but the president to his credit has submitted a budget each and every year with his priorities. this is the budget he submitted for 2012. this was just last february, the law required it. he complied with it. but he's running for re-election and he's got his fingers on the pulse of the american people, but what they need and what they desire and what they want from the united states government, all tuned towards an election in november anti-budget that he submitted -- and the budget that he submitted raidses taxes a
to the united states, don't be surprised if you see the president greet the dead bodies when they come back to the united states later today. now, despite the focus on foreign policy fight, both the president and romney have also seemed anxious on the trail yesterday to turn back to domestic issues. look at romney. he tried to boost support among women. every speaker at the romney rally in virginia, other than romney, was a woman. the campaign made sure women were featured prominently behind romney when he spoke. >> i had a chance to meet a woman entrepreneur. i met a lot of them. i met one and said to her, how duties your business started? she said, well, my husband lost his job -- >> stumping in colorado the president tried to connect with voters on the personal level as he's been doing using his own biography in an attempt to show a subtle contrast with romney. >> let's face it, a mixed kid from hawaii born to a single mom is not likely to become president of the united states. >> then there was vice president biden who stumped in paul ryan's home state of wisconsin. ryan was back on cap
on, good jobs. right here in the united states of america. [applause] when it comes to the health of our families, barack refused to listen to those folks who told him to leave health reform for another day. another president. he did not care whether it was the easy thing to do politically. that is not how he was raised. he cared that it was the right thing to do. [applause] he did it because he believed that here in america, our grandparents should be able to afford their medicine. our kids should be able to see a doctor when they are sick. and no one in this country should ever go broke because of an accident or illness. [applause] and he believes that women are more than capable of making our own choices about our bodies and our health care. [applause] that is what my husband stands for. when it comes to giving our kids reeducation they deserve, barack knows that like me and so many of you, he never could have attended college without financial aid. and believe it or not, when we were first married, our combined monthly student loan bill was actually higher than our market. we
for the united states and the things that he's done for humanity, what a credible voice tonight. what a credible voice. as much as he has been through, as much as he was targeted, he can speak from experience and say i never hated those guys. i wanted to get something done, and he did. i thought he spoke very well to the economy tonight too. he made the case about the philosophy of success, about, you know, wealthy people doing a little bit more because they can. i mean, i thought he had a great -- >> i think before you lead the hate part, because he talked about people proud of being -- their kids being born in america, which referred to this is a deeper and different kind of hate. they hated hillary clinton for what she wanted to do. they hated him for what they wanted to do. they hate president obama because of what he wants to do and because of what he is. that's what he was eluding to. which was a different hate than bill clinton. they never asked bill clinton for his birth certificate. so he understands the levels of hate here. as much as they fought hillary and him, they never asked him f
washington from inside? well -- >> he's the president of the united states. who else is going to change washington. people look to him for leadership. that's the criticism. >> the american people are going to change washington. that's what he has always said throughout this campaign and the previous campaign. you know what we've proved it. it's the only reason we cut taxes for the middle class, the only reason we were able to reform the health care system or put wall street protections in place. you know, if we hadn't mobilized the american people we wouldn't be able to cut payroll taxes. that is the only way you can change and affect change in washington. >> does he sound -- >> particularly -- >> does he sound like he's giving up on moving past the gridlock, getting his legislation through congress? doesn't he have to lead the way if we're going to have immigration reform, have tax reform, if big things are going to happen, the way as you would argue he did with health reform? >> andrea you know washington well and understand there are pretty tough entrenched interests in the house rep
for the united states senate, this guy, todd akin, with his views? >> it was a three-way primary, and the far right, very evangelical, religious base of the republican party, the mike huckabee, rick santorum wing of the republican party coalesced behind todd akin in the primary and in a three-way primary, that was enough. >> earlier this week akin is back in shape here i guess in terms of the establishment. he had this to say about your debating style. take a look. >> the first two minutes it was like somebody let a wildcat loose and so we went at it for about an hour. >> he said he was surprised about how you attacked from every different direction. you know, as if it was a debate or something. he said you weren't very ladylike. let's check that thought from him. >> she was very aggressive in the debate, which was quite different than the way she was when she ran against jim talent. she had a confidence and was very much more sort of ladylike in the debate we had friday. she came out swinging, and i think that's because she was threatened. >> well, today akin denied his use of the word ladyl
of the united states. so that if they don't do so well, the expectations game is a little lower. reminds me when al gore was debating george w. bush in 2000, al gore, the vice president of the united states, was seen as a great debate, george w. bush not so much. but then al gore, you know, had some fumbles and in terms of the sighing he did and a lot of people were paying attention to that. and bush all of a sudden looked a whole lot better. these debates can be significant for relatively trivial things like that, if, for example, and you remember when the first president bush, george h.w. bush, you know, at one of the presidential debates started looking at his watch and it looked like he was ready to move on. let's get out of here, already. that hurt him, i think, in his re-election bid against bill clinton back in 1992. it is part of the game. it is what goes on. but i think these debates are going to be really, really important for that, 6%, 7%, 8% who are legitimately undecided or switchable, haven't completely made up their minds. they're going to be watching the three presidential debate
public investments. our good schools, our universities. medicare, security. and that in the united states when those two have met, when individual initiative has met with a common sacrifice and investment by the nation, that's what's created upward mobility. and the ability to reach the american dream in our society that makes america unique. and i put before the nation the clear choice that we have in this election between a leader in barack obama who will -- who has been doing that, making those investments and will in the future and another leader who would scale back from those investments and therefore i think hinder america's ability to be the land of opportunity going forward for everyone. >> where did you come up with that line of the night? i think it was the best line so far in this convention where you said mitt romney said just ask your old man for money when you want to start a business. you said why didn't i think of that? where did you come up with that great sarcasm? >> what i wanted to do was be optimistic but point out the differences. as the first lady pointed out very
a nuclear weapon. of course the united states and israel has gone back and forth when and if a strike is necessary. the united states secretary of state sat down with prime minister netanyahu yesterday for a meeting. that is not the meeting that the prime minister wanted. he did want to meet with president obama. requested a meeting. that was request was denied. the prime minister offered to fly to washington, d.c. today to meet with president obama. we learned he is spending much of the day at campaign events. back in israel, we look again at the newspaper. not all the reaction is positive. next to the prime minister drawing on the diagram of the bomb is a headline a little bit making fun of him saying bebe, the prime minister's nickname, boom. one headline down here. they have had a caricature of him as bugs bunny drawing on the same diagram, calling the diagram a cartoon. there is feeling among some, doing that at united nations holding up the diagram and drawing the red line was perhaps not fitting the prime minister of israel. gregg? gregg: leland vittert in jerusalem. thank you
barak obama, president of the united states. democrats believe in reigniting the american dream by removing barriers to success and building ladders of opportunity for all. so that everyone can succeed. jobs are central to the american dream. and president obama has focused on jobs from day one. under president obama we've gone from losing 800,000 jobs a month to adding 4.5 million private sector jobs over the last 29 months. the american dream is about freedom. jobs means freedom. for workers to support their families. working with president obama, democrats passed a lilly better pay fair act to strengthen women's rights in the workplace. we repealed don't ask don't tell so our troops can serve the country they love regardless of whom they love. we made college more affordable. house democrats passed the dream act. but senate republicans blocked it. with president obama, democrats enacted the toughest consumer safeguards in history. to protect main street from wrecklessness of some on wall street. democrats passed healthcare reform to allow americans the freedom to pursue their
's effort. jon: what do they get out of it? is it iranian oil, is it tweaking the united states? >> reporter: it's both of those but they are acting in their own interest. as every nation should. we sometimes apologize for acting in our best interests. but russia and china view it as important to their agenda to block the sanctions in a meaningful way. jon: president obama said he would do whatever it takes to keep iran from gaining a nuclear weapon. will we? >> not under his administration, that is for sure. he's been saying this all openings are on the table for three and a half years and it just has no credibility at this point. the israelis don't believe him, the iranians don't believe him, the russians and the chinese don't believe him. that's why i believe ahmadinejad comes from a place of confidence because his overall stra teak eupblstrategic objectives can be well undertaken. the u.s. issued a statement this morning they weren't attending because it's yom kippur a hole who hwho he lee faith for the jewish faith. i think the u.s. delegation should have walked out on monday when mahm

most bipartisan in the united states senate. i was recently named by "washingtonian" magazine as least partisan senator. the key is to do it together truly in a bipartisan manner. we drew a line in the sand collectively and in a bipartisan way. we need to sit down in a room in a bipartisan manner. the only way we're going to get this done is to actually work together in a truly bipartisan manner and i'm the only one in this room right now who's going to be doing that. being the second most bipartisan senator right now, i've been doing it since i got there. >> there isn't even an -- that "r" next to my name, it stands for the "r" that's in bipartisan. i'm no republican, pay no attention to the "r." i abbreviate things from the middle. every senate republican, every republican candidate for the united states senate has a problem in his or her race right now. and the problem in all of those senate races for republican candidate is this man. mitt romney. the republican party's current standard bearer. republican senate candidate george allen of virginia in his debate this afternoon was ask

would be the democratic nominee and president of the united states if that was the case. you have to give people a reason to vote for you. >> steve, you make pay compelling argument there. the debates, perhaps, michael, the next opportunity and the last opportunity for mitt romney to make this case. both sides have elised memos. this is beth myers of the romney campaign. this is what she says in part. it's clear that president obama will use his ample rhett for cal gifts in debating experience at one end. we expect a 90-minute attack ad. david axelrod not to be outdone by the obama campaign. saying we expect mitt romney to be prepared, disciplined and aaggressive. the first debate generally favor challengers. both sides are trying to manage expectations here? >> absolutely. >> this guy's really good. >> how do we get in the ring with him all of a sudden? >> right. >> they're skilled on their feet. that's how they got this far. i don't know that the second and third debate will matter that much for governor romney if there isn't something significant out of debate number one. >> i

in the barrel. this is though arbitrary. think about this. the president of the united states appears on david letterman and does not know the size of the national debt, which under his watch --. >> at least did not admit it. >> at least didn't admit. he could have said. just over $16. 20 billion, 27 billion, depending on the time of the day he could have admit the. sort of like one of those moments you say, wait a minute. then he dismissed it as not being a problem in the short run. i mean the debt has grown from 10 trillion $800 billion to 16 trillion on his watch. it has gone from 40% of the gdp to 70% of the gdp. we're starting to look like grease and the president says i don't even know what the number is. nobody gives him his turn in the barrel. bill: you and him and other deactors would say it has gone up $6 trillion under your watch. >> 5 trillion to be fair. bill: $16 now and -- >> 10.8. i want to be fair to him. bill: here we have the polling numbers seem to suggest that the president's gaining sfwround on mitt romney. you're reaching back into 1980 to tell us things were much differ
is that the united states, and the president in particular, shares that same goal as benjamin netanyahu does of preventing iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon, and so that's sort of the official word coming from the white house to the remarks made by the prime minister yesterday. >> all right. dan lothian, thanks, dan. good to see you, as always. >>> just a handful of swing states could decide who is going to win the presidential race. polls showing president obama with alight edge in several of hers. ul, first of alle've go poll numbers, and it looks like somethese swing states are very much still in play. some not so much. what do we know? >> you know, let's not talk about ohio and florida because we've talked about them so much in the last couple of days. let's talk about the other swing states. a brand new poll out in virginia has the president up by just two points. take a look at that. we factored into a cnn poll of polls. this averages all the most recent polls in virginia. we have it at 49% for obama. 49% for romney. so it's a pretty close call -- close contest in virginia. 13 elect
